A flood of natural light and a neutral backdrop add to the newfound sense of spaciousness with the bedrooms study and other private areas sitting at the front. For many of us 7 meters of space does not seem like much. But there are townhouses across the globe that work with far less in terms of the width available to them.
Apart from the obvious façade of the house the first feature one notices here is the gorgeous crafted entrance and the smart gardens that surround the structure. A modern pool and tennis court sit next to one another and a series of tall trees on the outside provide privacy in natural manner. On the inside white is the color of choice in different rooms with natural light flooding in to add to the brightness and sense of freshness.
Two intersecting volumes combine to create a structure that captures different views in different directions. It is the first level of the house that contains the living area kitchen and dining in an open plan setting while the second floor contains the bedrooms which are oriented in a completely different direction.
Designed by Michael Maltzan Architecture each of the apartments has a ventilation system that reduces dependency on artificial heating and cooling while smart planning around the building keeps ambient temperature as constant as possible.
A smart staircase connects the two different levels of the house effortlessly with natural light flooding through both the levels. Clean lines and contemporary décor put the final touches on this beautiful Chilean residence.
The 1950’s home now hosts a family with two teenage twins and its ageing structure could no longer meet the demands of their fast-paced life. The new interior completely moves away from the original as the additions and changes to the East Fremantle home turn the lower level into a vibrant and inviting social zone.
Then there is the benefit of finding parking space under the cantilevered top level or; or a sheltered outdoor hangout at the very least. Nestled on an already elevated lot in Centinela Hill in Matanzas the in aims to capture the view of distant village of La Boca.
The residence was built on a lot with plenty of vegetation and to ensure that much of the existing greenery was left untouched the building plan divided the home into three distinct units.
